Self-care gets tossed around a lot. But it doesn’t mean painting your nails. I think self-care has two levels of exploration necessary to actually do the term– and yourself– justice:
1 – Foundational, the basics: checking in, meeting basic needs
2 – Radical, the depths: what stands in the way of your needs being met, are you in a good system that allows for your care, asking yourself why it’s tough to meet those basic needs
So I made us an infographic of The Basics to start! Part two for Radical Self-Care up next. Use this like a “Check-in Checklist” during your work day, whether it’s stressful or not, to start deciphering which of your needs often go unmet in your day.
